Michael Bublé releasing Christmas album

Michael Bublé will release his very first Christmas album next month (Oc11).

Michael Buble's Christmas will feature festive favorites including Bing Crosby's White Christmas, which he'll perform as a duet with fellow Canadian Shania Twain.

The crooner says, "Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year for me and my family, so naturally it's been a dream of mine to make the ultimate Christmas record."

But he admits it was a little odd to record the winter songs in the middle of a California heatwave: "We decorated the studio with Christmas lights in the middle of July (11) and that was a big help."

The singer's family has already given the newlywed's new album a big thumbs up.

He adds, "My mother told me it's the best record I ever made."

This will be Michael Bublé's first Christmas as model Luisana Lopilato's husband - the couple wed in March (11).
